Title: 2019 Nebraska Season Thread
Post by: Hoss on December 17, 2018, 04:33:19 PM
Key tasks

1) Adding manpower to DL

2) Find suitable No. 2 and 3 WRs

3) Replace Ozigbo's production at IB

4) Get better athletes on the field at LB and S

5) Continue improvement at OL

6) Watch AMart do AMart things

***************************

Willing to juggle the order of 2-6, but 1 is set in stone imo.

Offense could be amazing next year if they find a replacement for Ozigbo.  Defense still looks a year or more away to me.  That wasn't a young unit, it just wasn't a good one.  I'm expecting a lot more of the same next year, but with the Huskers coming out ahead in a few more of those shootouts.  Enough to get into a bowl I'd assume.

Defensively there is no question that any significant improvement will require the addition of a couple new starters. Fortunately, that possibility exists, but of course its just possibility. 

Up front, we had a young player (Deontre Thomas) who looked like a rare bright spot in 2017, but missed all of 2018 with injury. Back healthy, he could make a big difference at a DE position. The maturation of Damien Daniels would go MILES toward improving the NT position...he is the powerful, 320lb "fella" we need there, but was still green last year. His big brother is transferring in from Oklahoma State, and hopefully can also provide some help on the DL.

Starts there.

A Lincoln man pleaded guilty Thursday in the burglary of Nebraska football coach Scott Frost's south Lincoln home.

Andrew M. Williams, 21, will face up to 20 years in prison on the charge at his sentencing next month.

Linebacker and special teams standout Jacob Weinmaster, a former walk-on who was put on scholarship before his junior campaign last fall, will give up the game after suffering an injury late in the 2018 season.

The Lincoln Journal-Star was the first to report the news. Under head coach Scott Frost, Nebraska's policy has been to let to players announce career decisions first. Weinmaster has yet to publicly announce his departure.

The Loveland, Colo., native saw limited time on defense this year but played a key role on Nebraska’s special teams. Of his 13 total tackles on the year, eight came on kickoff and punt coverage.

After redshirting his first season in 2015, he played in 22 total games in his career and finished with 15 tackles.

Weinmaster will remain close to the program, as he will be allowed to stay on scholarship until he graduates and not count against the Huskers’ scholarship limit.

On top of that, his younger brother, Zach Weinmaster, will walk-on at Nebraska this season as a wide receiver.

LINCOLN, Neb. —
University leaders revealed the campus’ motto for 2019 – a call to action through hard work and determination, and appropriate for celebrating the University of Nebraska Lincoln's 150th anniversary.

“In our grit, our glory,” Chancellor Ronnie Green said.

It's all about football, all the time in Nebraska...............

Inscribed on the four corners of the stadium are the following words, written by former Nebraska professor of philosophy Hartley Burr Alexander:

Southeast: "In Commemoration of the men of Nebraska who served and fell in the Nation's Wars."
Southwest: "Not the victory but the action; Not the goal but the game; In the deed the glory."
Northwest: "Courage; Generosity; Fairness; Honor; In these are the true awards of manly sport."
Northeast: "Their Lives they held their country's trust; They kept its faith; They died its heroes."

303/404 Tite Front (https://matchquarters.com/2016/10/10/the-3-4-tite-front/)

Hearing some rumors that lead me to believe we'll be seeing Nebraska implement the 303/404 front this coming season. Probably a better fit for the DL personnel we have on-hand than the 2-gap style used most of the time in 2018.

In a joint statement released to KLIN, University of Nebraska President Hank Bounds and UNL Chancellor Ronnie Green affirmed their support of Nebraska Athletic Director, Bill Moos.

“In his first 15 months, Bill has done a great job guiding our athletic department. He has our full support, and we look forward to his continued strong leadership.”

The statement was triggered by unsubstantiated speculation that appeared on several social media sites surrounding Moos’s future with UNL.

Nebraska football will be looking for a new defensive line coach. 

Defensive line coach Mike Dawson has taken an outside linebacker coaching position with the New York Giants. The NFL franchise announced the hire on Monday morning. 

“Coach Dawson informed me late last week he had chosen to accept a coaching position with the New York Giants,” Nebraska head coach Scott Frost said in a statement on Monday. “Mike has been a key part of our staff the past three seasons at Nebraska and UCF. He is a man of great character, an outstanding teacher, relates well to players and is a tremendous asset for any coaching staff.

Przystup, who was a walk-on punter at Michigan State, saw action in four games last season as the Spartans were hit by a number of injuries at the position. Przystup punted 27 times for an average of 40.59 yards with nine of those kicks being downed inside the opponent’s 20-yard-line. Because he only played in four games, Przystup was able to use his redshirt season. 

Przystup was the Spartans primary punter over the final four games of the season, and started at punter in Michigan State's loss to Nebraska in November. In that game, Przystup punted seven times for an average of 42 yards and put one punt inside Nebraska's 20-yard line. The Florida native found himself in a numbers crunch heading into the offseason. The Spartans return starter Jake Hartbarger, who suffered a season-ending injury in Game 2. They'll also have on the roster Tyler Hunt, who is listed as a placekicker, but filled in as the punter after Hartbarger went down, and Bryce Baringer, who joined the program midseason once MSU needed more depth.

Przystup will have to sit out the 2019 season as a transfer, and will have three seasons of eligibility remaining beginning in the 2020 season. He enters the program at an interesting time for Nebraska's special teams units. Przystup gives the Huskers five punters on their roster heading into next season, and will join a group that includes senior punters Caleb Lightbourn, Isaac Armstrong and Jackson Walker. As it stands now, Przystup will be battling with 2019 walk-on Grant Detlefsen for the starting punting job in 2020.

MSU also added a punter from Australia.  I thought the kid acquitted himself well as the #5 punter.

Post by: FearlessF on February 13, 2019, 12:52:11 PM
Frost and Huskers AD Bill Moos told The Post they’re working on trying to set up a permanent rotation with their old Big Eight football rivals.

“I’d love to see us, if we’re going to play one Power 5 non-conference (game), to have it be one of the old Big Eight rivals,” the Huskers football coach told The Denver Post. “It’s great playing teams like Colorado.”

Frost’s boss, athletic director Bill Moos, doubled down on the sentiment. The Buffaloes host Nebraska on Sept. 7 to complete the second part of a four-part home-and-home series that picks back up again in 2023 (Boulder) and 2024 (Lincoln). The Big Red’s coach and athletic director say they’ve talked extensively about keeping CU on a rotation that would include series, ideally, with former Big Eight rivals such as Oklahoma, whom the Huskers meet in 2021, 2022, 2029 and 2030; as well as with Kansas State, Kansas, Missouri and Iowa State.


“What Scott and I would really like to do, for our home-and-home series — we’d have to go out a ways or drop some games — is play our rivals from the Big Eight days,” Moos explained. “Then we’ve got a presence in three conferences: the SEC (Missouri), the Pac-12 (Colorado), and the Big 12. So that’s all good, and those rivalries are strong with us.

“Well, obviously, I’m not the one that sets the schedule,” Frost said of the Buffs, who began play in the Pac-12 in 2011, the same season Nebraska flipped to the Big Ten. “But rather than traveling all over the country, there’s a lot of fans that still remember those Big Eight games. And we have Colorado on the schedule and Oklahoma on the schedule. But we’d love to have that be our marquee (non-conference) matchup every year, with Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Colorado, (a rivalry) game that both sets of fans could travel to and maybe reminisce a little bit.”

I don't think you can draw that inference.   Folks in California contacted UNL and requested to speak w MW in Aug, Sep.  MW attorney said he never disclosed details w UNL citing privilege.  Statements made by UNL suggest they were not informed of details at all until Feb 8th.    They knew CA wanted to speak w MW in Aug. About a matter.  What matter?  UNL says they weren't informed. 

Questions of course to be asked would include, did UNL then or ever speak w MW about this?  Did UNL make any effort to attempt to learn of details of what occurred in CA?   Assuming MW counsel and CA say nothing of details to school, what's their duty at that point?

Right.  An Indirect statement made by either investigator or by AG office saying Bruning said he represented Athletic Dept.  The document does not provide any detail as to who and how that information was gathered.  Of course this detail wasn't material to California's effort to file a charge , and a direct statement yesterday from Bruning saying he didn't say he represented the Athletic department .  School's statement says they were not aware of details of case until recently .

Sept. 13, 2018: Sexton texts Washington: "Please call ... I'd prefer to handle this between us but if I need to involve AD I will."
Sexton contacts the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Police Department seeking to confirm Washington's contact information. Police provide Washington's contact information to Sexton and Sexton's information to the athletic department. 
Later that day, Jamie Vaughn, the NU assistant athletic director of compliance, calls Sexton to say he had spoken to Husker football staff, who were concerned about Washington needing a lawyer. Vaughn says he would try to set up a time for Washington to meet with Sexton. 
Vaughn informs Bob Burton, deputy athletic director/chief of staff, and Athletic Director Bill Moos of the conversation with Sexton. 
The football staff introduces Washington to Jon Bruning, a former Nebraska attorney general, Husker booster and longtime friend to Matt Davison, the associate athletic director of football, and coach Scott Frost.
(At some point, Frost asks Bruning whether the football staff should be concerned about the investigation. Bruning does not reveal details of the nature of the inquiry but says it involved a text message when Washington was in California. Bruning tells Frost he doubted it would result in criminal charges.)

I'll be watching too.   But it appears the staff was told there would not be charges and there was no issue.   If true, I'm not sure what they would do differently.   

But you really have to question the judgement of a kid who texts a video to an ex showing her being sexually assaulted.   I guess I can't see being bitter enough about a break up to do that... maybe people get that way, but even if it is not criminal in all states (it is in California) it does show poor judgement and lack of decency.  


and for clarity, Washington did not film nor was involved in the assault.   Texting the assault back at the victim is the crime.

Yeah, I don't see how they should have been expected to handle it differently, but now there is no reason for him not to have been already kicked off the team.  Unless he just didn't do it, which seems unlikely, then what he did is enough that he should be gone, no matter where the legal process goes from here.

We all know people who have done dumb things after break ups..  He certainly wanted to hurt her emotionally, which I believe is one of the reasons the law is in place.   Not all states have these same laws... and they probably should.

The law has nothing to do with why I'd have already dismissed him.  A guy who would send a video of an assault to the victim is nobody I'd want anywhere near my team.
agree.   My only point in mentioning it is if she wasn't in California, I'm not sure this ever is known.   We'd have no clue that he held onto a video for years with the purpose to harm her further.   We'd be oblivious.  

I am disappointed in UNL at this moment.   At a minimum they know what we know..

Nebraska is expected to hire Tony Tuioti to its staff to replace Mike Dawson as the D-line coach, according to sources at Cal, where Tuioti has been serving as the D-line coach.

Tuioti has spent the past two seasons at Cal after serving as the director of player personnel at Michigan in 2016, where he headed the Wolverines' recruiting department. He coached the defensive line for the Golden Bears this past year after being in charge of the outside backers in 2017.

A higher voter turnout for the 2019 Association of Students of the University of Nebraska voted to keep the balloon release at Husker home football games, and ban plastic bags.

The election saw a jump in turnout, with 16.4 percent of the student body turning out to constitute a nearly 5 percentage point increase from 2018’s 11.4 percent turnout.

This year’s election also posed two environment-related questions; the first about banning plastic bags on campus and the second to gauge interest about ending the balloon release at Husker football games.

A majority of voters voted yes to banning plastic bags on campus. Voters voted no to ending the balloon release, with a close decision of 51.9 percent indicating they wanted to keep the tradition.

Nebraska picked up a very interesting and potentially important late 2019 commitment over the weekend from defensive tackle Jahkeem Green. The Highland Community College defender committed to the staff while in person on his official visit over the weekend. Highland Community College coach Judd Remmers confirmed the commitment on Monday night.

The addition of Green, who has course work to finish up to become immediately eligible, gives Nebraska another defensive tackle for the 2019 season.

Green will sign as soon as the next NCAA signing period opens next month. Nebraska has been diligently working to add to its 2019 cycle after having several spots open at the end of the period in February. 

Green was productive during his time with the Scotties. This past season he finished with 67 tackles and 2.5 sacks from the defensive tackle spot. As a freshman he finished with 49 tackles and four tackles for a loss. 

Originally from South Carolina, Green ended up at Highland after high school. The defensive tackle attempted to go back and play for his home state Gamecocks, but he was unable to qualify academically in December. The Gamecocks moved on in the second signing period and he did not sign then either, leaving Green open. 

The defender took one other official visit to Tennessee, but remained at Highland and continued to work toward qualification. Nebraska got in the mix late and continued a dialogue. Remmers, an assistant at Highland, believes that helped set the door for the eventual commitment that came on Green's own official visit.

Once Green signs and completes the course work, he'll be able to join the Nebraska football team in the summer.

Dennis Leblanc has crunched the numbers like any good veteran academic director would, and he’s determined that if Adrian Martinez sticks on his current path, the Nebraska quarterback could become a nominee for Academic All-America honors this fall as a sophomore.

If that holds true, and Martinez is honored, he would be the first Nebraska quarterback in more than 20 years to become an Academic All-American.

The last one?

That would be Scott Frost, now the Nebraska head coach.

Frost earned second-team honors in 1997, so Leblanc, the Nebraska Senior Associate Athletic Director of Academics, likes to kid Martinez that he could top his coach by making first team.

Either way, it’s of no coincidence to Leblanc that the Nebraska football team’s latest academic achievement has come with Frost at the helm.

Entering the spring semester, the Huskers’ 3.001 team cumulative GPA is the highest Nebraska football team GPA since the school began tracking it in 1992-93. In addition, the 3.008 team GPA from the fall is the football program’s highest in a fall semester since 1989-90.

“I was ecstatic to see our team GPA come out where it was,” said Frost, beginning his second season as Nebraska’s head coach. “It shows we have a lot of people doing things the right way. I’m obviously grateful to Dennis and Keith Zimmer in Life Skills and all the academic support people that are helping our team.”

Leblanc deflected that praise directly back to Frost.

“In tracking these grade point averages for 30 years, it’s pretty remarkable when you look at it,” Leblanc said. “When people talk about coach Frost and how he’s changed the culture, it’s just amazing when you look at what he’s done. I knew it was going to improve a lot (with academics), but I didn’t know it would be that significant.”

For example, 60 percent of football student-athletes had a 3.0 or better GPA in the fall 2018 semester. That was an increase of 14 percent compared to the fall 2017 semester.

Redshirt freshman defensive back Cam Jones came to Nebraska with a lot of promise a year ago, but he'll leave NU without seeing the field.
The former four-star recruit did not practice for most of the spring to address academic issues.
HuskerOnline has confirmed that Jones will leave NU and enter his name into the NCAA transfer portal.
Jones is the fourth scholarship player to move on from NU this spring, joining senior punter Caleb Lightbourn, junior linebacker Quayshon Alexander and sophomore linebacker Breon Dixon.
No other scholarship players are expected to be moving on from the program following the spring. Final exams at UNL will take place next week.
Jones' departure puts NU at 81 players on scholarship (https://nebraska.rivals.com/news/2016-huskeronline-com-scholarship-distribution-chart) heading into the month of May.

Wide receiver Kanawai Noa is set to join the Nebraska Cornhuskers this fall. The Cal graduate transfer receiver announced his intentions to join the Huskers on Instagram on Sunday.

He posted a photo of himself in a Nebraska jersey and a photo alongside Troy Walters.

While at Cal, Noa caught 94 passes for 1,224 yards and six touchdowns. Noa's best season came his sophomore year when he pulled in 56 receptions for 788 yards. This past year Noa dealt with an injury that sidelined for much of the 2018 season, but he did return for the Cheez-It Bowl where he made a pair of catches.


It's the second addition from Cal this year, as Noa joins Tony Tuioti, who joined Nebraska as the defensive line coach in February. Originally from Hawaii, Noa was a three-star commitment in the 2015 class. He'll have one season of eligibility remaining.

The addition of Noa will be a bit of a boon for Nebraska at wide receiver. The Huskers lost its top wide receiver in Stanley Morgan this past season. Morgan leaves as Nebraska's all-time leader in yards per season and career. 

Noa, who stands 6-foot, 185 pounds, joins seniors Mike Williams and Jaron Woodyard in the position room. It's Nebraska's second graduate transfer addition, joining defensive tackle Darrian Daniels, who committed and enrolled this winter and spent the spring with Nebraska.

Booting off of comments (copied below) from @medinabuckeye1 (https://www.cfb51.com/index.php?action=profile;u=1547) in ELA’s countdown thread, I completely agree. As a big believer in Frost, year two is where we’ll see the big jump. It’s one of those scenarios where it’s easy to point out how Nebraska doesn’t have the top shelf talent of Ohio State or Penn State yet, but that isn’t the point for Nebraska going into this season. The greater point is I’m expecting the core talent that’s already in place to be much improved across the roster to the point that the higher-focus pieces (the QB) will have a much easier job with a well taught roster around him. 

Another help is the division. I don’t see anyone as a particular front runner like Wisconsin of the past few years. The mixed bag of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and NW looks like a setup where all could go 2-2 Vs each other. Toss in Nebraska and I’m counting on Frost & Staff to exploit the larger flaws each of those four opponents have.

Fun times in the B1G West!

I see Nebraska as a wildcard where almost nothing would surprise me.  With most of their toughest opponents at home and most of their easiest on the road that could go either way:

If they are somewhat better than ELA projects:  They could be an 8-1 or 7-2 team. 

If they are as ELA projects:  They could be a 1-8 or 2-7 team. 

Their schedule means that the gap between 7-2 and 2-7 isn't very large.

I think the roster is a year out from being able to challenge for the division title. I think the talented incomers are too young to do it consistently.

Per your statement of being a "tough out", I completely agree. I think it'll be the sort of team who can beat anyone on any given Saturday. Just think they'll also lose enough games due to inconsistency to be out of contention.

So between MN, IA, WI, NW, Pur & NE I could see the six of them going 3-3 against each other which makes their crossover schedules that much more important.

Regarding Wisconsin, in over 15 seasons of watching Badgers football I’ve learned two things: 1) they uniquely go as their offensive line goes. A solid performance by their OL this year will return them right back to the success of PC’s first few seasons. & 2) Wisconsin is hardly ever blown out - maybe every 4 or 5 seasons a loss will stand out as a real butt kicking. For example against Michigan last season (and MN) but before that I have to remember all the way back to the 2008 Champs Sports Bowl loss Vs Florida State (with Bill Mays on sideline) to remember anything that bad.

My analysis of B1G HFA for Nebraska from @ELA (https://www.cfb51.com/index.php?action=profile;u=55) 's countdown thread:
Nebraska:  The Cornhuskers schedule is almost exactly the inverse of Purdue's.  It is GREAT if they are a CCG contender and TERRIBLE if they are struggling for bowl eligibility.  Nebraska's best four opponents visit Lincoln (tOSU, IA, UW, NU) while they play four of their five worst opponents on the road (MN, PU, UMD, IL).  IMHO, this makes predicting Nebraska's record a complete crapshoot.

So between MN, IA, WI, NW, Pur & NE I could see the six of them going 3-3 against each other which makes their crossover schedules that much more important.

I doubt that they will all go 3-3 against each other because even if they are all relatively equal the schedules are not.  Well, that and the fact that you listed six teams which equals five games each which means 3-2 or 2-3 are mathematical possibilities but not 3-3. 

At this point, I think that Wisconsin is the team to beat due to schedule if nothing else.  They host Iowa, Northwestern, and Purdue and travel to Minnesota and Nebraska. 

Games among the six teams that you listed and their crossovers:
 - Nebraska:  Hosts three (IA, UW, NU), visits two (MN, PU); visits UMD, hosts tOSU and IU
 - Wisconsin:  Hosts three (IA, NU, PU), visits two (MN, UNL); visits tOSU, hosts M and MSU
 - Northwestern:  Hosts three (IA, MN, PU), visits two (UW, UNL); visits IU, hosts tOSU and MSU
 - Purdue:  Hosts two (MN, UNL), visits three (IA, UW, NU); visits PSU, hosts IU and UMD

Cassidy will graduate in August with a degree in communications studies and sociology.

Nebraska continues to be a popular pick to win the Big Ten West Division this offseason. The latest projection for the Huskers to end up in Indianapolis, playing for the conference title, comes courtesy of Phil Steele. His annual preview hits newsstands this month (https://philsteele.com/product/2019-college-football-preview/).
"When you look at the Big Ten West right now it is a crap shoot," Steele told Chris Schmidt in an interview for Hail Varsity Radio (https://hailvarsity.com/t/904/hail-varsity-radio). Steele has the Huskers topping that group followed by, in order, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Northwestern, Purdue and Illinois.
This is the seventh time Steele has picked Nebraska to win its division in the last 14 seasons, dating to 2006. He projected the Huskers to play for a conference title in 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Nebraska did make it to the conference championship game in four of those seasons.
But wait, there's more. Nebraska is also Steele's pick for the "most improved" team in 2019.
"When I look at Nebraska, they're a team that opened 0-6 last year for the first time ever, 0-5 for the first time since 1945," Steele said. "I thought they were better than their 0-6 record would indicate. We saw it down the stretch when they went 4-2.
"It's the second year for Scott Frost. He was drastically changing the offense from more of a pass offense to one that runs the football more. We've seen Nebraska struggle on defense the last couple of years, but I'm bullish on the players they have coming back on D."
Steele picked Florida as his most-improved team in 2018. The Gators, in Year 1 under Dan Mullen, went from 4-7 to 10-3, and they're net points per play jump of 0.320 was the fourth-biggest since 2014, one spot behind 2017 UCF (0.383).
Notre Dame was Steele's most-improved pick in 2017. Coming off a 4-8 2016 season, the Irish rebounded to go 10-3, setting the stage for last year's 12-0 run to the College Football Playoff where Notre Dame lost to eventual national champion Clemson.
Texas earned the nod in 2016, but the Longhorns put up the same 5-7 record in Tom Herman's first season as they had the previous year. Nebraska was number two on the list that year, going from 6-7 in Mike Riley's first season to 9-4.

One of the catalysts in Nebraska baseball’s rise to national prominence in his playing days, Will Bolt returns to his alma mater as head coach. Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos named Bolt the 24th head coach of the Husker baseball program on Friday.

Bolt brings 16 years of coaching experience to the Nebraska program, including five seasons on the Husker baseball staff and four years as a head coach at Texarkana College.

Bolt served as Nebraska’s Associate Head Coach under Darin Erstad from 2012 to 2014 and also was a volunteer assistant on the 2005 Husker team that reached the College World Series. As a player or coach, Bolt has been a part of all three of Nebraska’s College World Series teams and all four Super Regional squads.

Bolt returns to Lincoln after spending the past five seasons on the Texas A&M staff where he helped the Aggies to five straight NCAA regional appearances and a trip to the 2017 College World Series.

“The opportunity to come back home to Nebraska and lead the Husker baseball program is such a blessing and honor for my family and me,” Bolt said.  “It is such an exciting time in Husker athletics with the foundation laid by Bill Moos within the athletic department, and the success Coach Erstad and staff have had on the field.

For the first time since 2016, Nebraska is in the AP Top 25.

The preseason Associated Press poll was released Monday morning and the Huskers checked in at No. 24.

The Huskers joined six other Big Ten teams in the preseason poll, which was topped by Ohio State at No. 5. Michigan came in at No. 7, Penn State at No. 15, Michigan State at No. 18, Wisconsin at No. 19 and Iowa at No. 20.

The last time Nebraska appeared in a preseason poll — Associated Press or Coaches— was in 2014 when it opened at No. 22 in both. Nebraska just missed out on the preseason Coaches Poll, released on Aug. 1, but received the most votes of any team outside the top 25. Head coach Scott Frost, who has a vote in the poll, did not include the Huskers in his ballot.

Nebraska’s entry into the AP top 25 marks the first time overall since Week 15 of the 2016 season, a run of 33 consecutive polls without the Huskers.

Head Coach Scott Frost spoke with the media after practice and touched on the development of the team and where it is headed.

Frost started off by speaking about some of the scholarships he's awarded to walk-ons.

"We gave one away today." Frost said. "I think on our team the way the roster sits with our 85 (scholarships) we probably have three to give. We're still trying to decide on a couple of them, but we put Trent Hixson on scholarship today. The team was fired up for him, so he'll be on scholarship."

Frost said the ability to award scholarships to walk-on players is a great way to recognize the contributions walk-ons make to the program.

>>Nebraska unveiled a Blackshirts-inspired uniform earlier this week, but unlike previous alternates this one isn't going to be a one-game special.

"Honestly, I've been thinking about this a long time, way before I was the coach at Nebraska," Frost said. "I've seen a lot of alternate uniforms at Nebraska, but I haven't seen one specifically for the Blackshirts.

"I think I can spill the beans, I think by next year hopefully we have a home and away version of this. Down the road I'd like to see it be a tradition that if the defense has a great game and holds an opponent under so many points then they earn the right to wear Blackshirts the next week. I think that would be another source of pride for our defense. We probably won't start that this year. I just want to get the uniforms broken in and make sure the kids like them, but I'd like to see that happen next year."

The 5-foot-11, 200-pound Stovall played his high school football at Omaha Creighton Prep and has become a standout on special teams. Stovall was Nebraska’s special teams player of the year in 2018, and has four tackles in 2019.

Stovall has appeared in 23 games during his Husker career, making five starts. He has made 16 total tackles during his career and recovered a fumble during his Husker career.

Nebraska will announce plans for a football facility on the day before the Ohio State game, The World-Herald has learned. NU athletics also sent a note to media outlets Thursday about a “major announcement” to be made in the East Stadium Plaza at 1:30 p.m Friday.


A press conference announcing the project had been widely expected this week, as NU Athletic Director Bill Moos on Wednesday night during a radio show hinted at an imminent announcement. According to one source, an investor’s meeting is planned for Friday, as well. The presser will include “key figures” from Nebraska’s athletic department and university administration.

The new facility is expected to have a price tag well over $100 million and will be built where the Ed Weir track stadium currently sits. The facility is expected to have bigger everything — weight room, locker room, meeting rooms — than the current North Stadium complex that opened in 2006. The new facility could have multiple stories, as well.

Nebraska football officially unveiled a proposed new football facility that athletic director Bill Moos said will be “a state-of-the-art, best facility of its kind in the country.”

The North Stadium expansion will a 350,000 square foot facility that will house the home of Nebraska football, as well as the training table and academic support for the entire Nebraska athletic department. The building will come with a $155 million price tag, and Nebraska hopes to break ground in spring 2020 with construction done in summer 2022.

The $155 million project will link the new facility with Memorial Stadium and will also improve the fan experience at Memorial Stadium. Construction will include new vertical transportation for fans entering and exiting the North Stadium.


The facility will provide the Nebraska football program with a new locker room, strength and conditioning center, athletic medicine facility, equipment room, meeting rooms, coaches’ offices and an additional outdoor practice facility. Plans for the building also include the training table and academic support facilities for student-athletes across all 24 Nebraska sports.

The current football facilities were built to accommodate a roster of approximately 125 players. Head Coach Scott Frost has placed a renewed emphasis on the importance and mission of the storied Nebraska walk-on program. Nebraska’s 2019 roster has more than 150 student-athletes creating a need for an expanded locker room, weight room, athletic medicine and meeting spaces.


Nebraska owns the largest roster in the Power Five ranks this season and trails only the service academies among FBS schools.

“This new complex will give our football program everything we need to operate efficiently on a daily basis,” Frost said in a statement. “This building will showcase Nebraska and be a difference-maker as we sell our program to recruits from all parts of the country. It was also important that we design a building that benefits all of our student-athletes and helps position all of our teams to compete at the highest level.”

The Nebraska Athletic Department has a goal of raising approximately $100 million to fund the ‘Go Big’ project. Moos said fundraising is about 35 to 40 percent to goal.

I know many Nebraska fans are looking for someone to blame for the poor performance Saturday, but  in my opinion the blame resides in their expectations.

In 1998 when Frank Solich took over as coach, UNL was loaded with NFL talent and a future Heisman Trophy winner.
In 2004 when Bill Callahan took over as coach, he inherited a team that averaged 4 NFL draft picks per year over his first 3 yrs as coach (almost exclusively on defense and OL)
In 2008 when Bo took over as coach, he inherited a team that averaged 4 NFL draft picks per year over his first 3 yrs as coach (again, mostly OL and Defense)
In 2015 when Riley took over as coach, he inherited a team that averaged 2 NFL draft picks per year over his first 3 yrs as coach (final two years were only 1 each year)
In 2018 when Frost took over as coach, he inherited a team that had Zero draft picks in 2019. 

From 1994-1997 UNL averaged almost 7 NFL draft picks per year.    I realize NFL draft picks exclude people like Tommie Frazier who was a great CF player.  However, it is a good way to directionally review talent. Talent is nowhere near the 90's.  It has been slowly declining since Callahan was fired.  

Frost did not inherit near the talent his predecessors inherited.  He will need more than 1.5 yrs to fix it.

doesn't appear to be good video of the infraction, but Frost is not denying it. 

>> Frost said they found out about Khalil Davis’ one-game suspension from the Big Ten late Tuesday, early Wednesday. They didn't know about what had happened during the game, Frost said, or they would have acted on it then. Frost was pretty vague when talking about the incident itself, and the TV broadcast doesn't show what actually happened, but he added that Davis will also face internal discipline as well as the one-game suspension handed down by the conference.


“We don’t condone what he did on the field,” Frost said. “So I support and agree with the decision.”

At this point it might be optimistic.  The Cornhuskers are 4-3 and here are their five remaining games ranked (by me) in order of likelihood to win:

If we assume (reasonably, I would argue) that they have almost no chance against either the Badgers or the Hawkeyes then they have to go 2-1 against the Hoosiers, Terps, and Boilermakers to get to a bowl.  If they lose to Indiana they are in big trouble.

On November 16th the Huskers will host the Wisconsin Badgers in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Kickoff time has not been set. I thought it would be nice to start a tailgate party about 10am on Saturday. 
Stop by, sit in a lawn chair, eat , drink, and talk college football.

Same spot as the past few seasons. A parking lot on the northwest corner of 8th and "L" Street. The lot is just three blocks south of "O" Street on South 8th street.  Near the Meadow Gold Dairy and under the Rosa Parks Way overpass.
Go to Google Maps and type in, "801 L Street, Lincoln, NE" or try this link:

Bring whatever food and beverage you'd like. Harry have a grill there. We’ll have burgers and brats and some beer (Bud Heavy)
A lawn chair and cheap sunglasses will come in handy.
I'll have paper plates, napkins, some mustard, a folding table, a cooler or two, and a large batch of "Sharkwater".
I’m hoping our Wisconsin Badger friends will attend the party!  Opposing fans ALWAYS make the party. 
This will be my 18th Sharkwater Party.  Harry is kind enough to host the event at his tailgate party, so please be respectful.
Please let me know if you plan to attend.  Trying to get a rough head count.

The Cornhuskers need two more wins to go bowling and right now I don't think that is any better than a 50/50 chance at best.  I'm surprised, I didn't expect them to get to the CFP this year, but I didn't expect them to struggle for bowl eligibility either. 
The only difference makers in in the program right now are a true freshman who is hurt, a true sophmore QB who is hurt, a true Sophmore RB who is dinged up and an upper classman WR who dinged up.  There are 2 jr's starting on this team.  2.    Last year UNL had a SR WR, SR RB, several SR's on the OL.  It was enough of a difference.  This year, the starting Center is a RS Freshman with a lot of talent, but he played TE last year.  UNL is young up front in the trenches and just like other programs in the west, has to build OL talent, not recruit it.

I'd also submit that UNL's N on the helmet recieves a different focus from opponents compared to Ill, or MSU.  Like a USC, even if they are down, teams want to beat them... they are a name brand.  UNL has that same problem.  The program gets other teams best.  and that includes OSU.  Buckeye's didn't drop passes vs UNL, but they did vs MSU.  Which game did they have more focus?  We both know the answer...

Nebraska student-athletes have posted a 93 percent NCAA Graduation Success Rate (GSR), continuing the Huskers' long tradition of being a national leader in the classroom. The NCAA released its GSR scores on Wednesday, with Nebraska recording its highest all student-athlete rate for the seventh consecutive year.

In addition to the highest all student-athlete GSR in Nebraska history, 10 Husker teams achieved a perfect 100 percent GSR. Those teams included women's basketball, women's gymnastics, rifle, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, women's tennis, volleyball, men's gymnastics and men's tennis.

The women's basketball, women's tennis and volleyball programs have achieved a perfect GSR each of the 15 years the rate has been computed by the NCAA.

The 93 percent GSR rate is another milestone for a program that has long been a national leader in academic and athletic achievement. Nebraska leads the nation with 338 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans in school history across all sports. Nebraska also leads the nation with 17 NCAA Today's Top 10 Award winners.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Three-time Nebraska track and field All-American Angela Mercurio was named the NCAA Woman of the Year at the award ceremony on Sunday night.

Mercurio became the second University of Nebraska student-athlete all-time to receive the honor, joining former Nebraska volleyball national champion Billie Winsett-Fletcher (1996).

The NCAA Woman of the Year award has been presented annually since 1991 and recognizes the nation's top senior female student-athlete who has excelled in the award's four pillars of academics, athletics, service and leadership. Mercurio and Winsett-Fletcher are the only student-athletes from a current Big Ten school to have been chosen as NCAA Woman of the Year.

"I'm really grateful to be here," Mercurio said. "Thank you to the NCAA for allowing us women to stand on a stage like this, and to share our voices and share our stories. This is very amazing. Thank you to the representatives from Nebraska, and to Nebraska in general. They truly give us so much, and there is no place like Nebraska. I say that confidently."

A native of Kitchener, Ontario, Mercurio was a two-time Google Cloud Academic All-America Second Team selection, as well as a three-time Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and four-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree. Earlier this year, she was also a recipient of the NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship, Big Ten Postgraduate Scholarship and was honored as one of the first-ever Rose Bowl Game Keith Jackson Postgraduate Scholarship recipients. She graduated from Nebraska in May with a 3.99 GPA as a double major in biochemistry and women's & gender studies.

"From virtually the day she arrived at Nebraska, Angela has been someone who has been so special to our program," Head Coach Gary Pepin said. "She was not only a terrific athlete, she was a great leader, a captain and a tremendous student, and she was wonderful to work with. We're very, very proud of her and she has earned everything that she's received."

"We're scholars, not football players!"
That was the war cry of my H.S. as our rival beat us every year.  (IIRC, it was my senior year they beat us 2-0 in the pouring rain.)
That's the school of Husker recruit Sevion Morrison, as I have previously related.  Well, his Edison Eagles lost 42-41 in the state 5A semifinals last night.  Very sad.  I think they finish the year 10-2.  One of the wins was an all-time ass-whuppin' of rival Memorial.

Gaylord seeking a sixth year: Nebraska senior left tackle Christian Gaylord, who missed the entire season with a knee injury, is not taking part in senior day festivities on Friday because he plans to file a waiver to receive a sixth year of eligibility, according to NU.

Gaylord suffered a season-ending injury during preseason camp and is considered a strong candidate to receive an extra year of eligibility.

The Baldwin, Kansas, native has played in 33 career games since redshirting in 2015 when he first arrived on campus, but has never started a game on the Husker offensive line.

Before the injury this year, he was considered Nebraska’s No. 2 left tackle behind junior Brenden Jaimes.
